Welcome to WiNMee 2012

The rise in wireless technologies for both local and wide-area networking, such as ZigBee, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, 3G and LTE, indicates that the Internet is becoming increasingly wireless. Accurate measurements of practical wireless deployments are vital for researchers to evaluate the real-world performance of proposed solutions. In addition to better understanding of systems, experimental wireless network measurements allow for better analytical and simulation models, which are often limited by simplified protocol and wireless channel models. As a consequence, the need for experimental wireless network measurements has gained wide recognition in the wireless networking research community. 

This workshop continues the successful WiNMee series, begun at WiOpt in 2005, and is intended to bring together researchers in the field of experimental wireless networking and serve as a forum for discussing advances and challenges in experimental wireless network measurements. We seek novel papers that advance the understanding of wireless networks through testbed measurements or field experiments.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following: 

- Experimentations and measurements of wireless networks:

  • Experience and measurements from building, designing and/or operating wireless networks (including location and energy consumption)

  • Measurement and characterization of mobile network (e.g., traffic, usage and mobility patterns)

  • Experimental validation of network simulation and mobility models in actual wireless environments

  • Measurements-driven models and simulations of wireless networks operations

  • Measurements-based network management and troubleshooting

  • Large-scale or federated test-bed measurements

  • Home networking measurements

- Techniques for wireless networks measurements:

  • Techniques for improving the repeatability of tests, simplifying experiment setup and reconfiguration

  • Techniques for validating the results obtained in wireless testbeds

  • Techniques for measuring heterogeneous wireless networks

  • Techniques for collecting, archiving, anonymising and sharing wireless measurement data

  • Techniques and experimental results on performance measurements of cognitive radio systems

  • Software tools for building and/or managing wireless test-beds (e.g., wireless link emulation)

  • Spectrum utilization measurements techniques in spectrum sharing and cognitive radio networks
